What space exists in society for the artistic discipline of dance? Which specific conditions and opportunities do residence programs and Künstlerhäuser (“art houses” – i.e. residency and exhibition organizations) offer to dance artists? In this symposium, Tanzplan Deutschland (a developmental project of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes), the Akademie Schloss Solitude with dancers and choreographers, as well as cultural scientists, artists, architects and representatives of cultural institutions reflect upon these two questions.
The relationship between artistic practice and the societal relevance of Künstlerhauser will be examined from February 22 to 24, 2007. Along with the subsequent workshops, the symposium will closely examine the following issues: the relationship between the space created by dancers and its effects on observers, and the concrete spaces that residences can offer artists.
Participants include Yehuda Safran, Columbia University New York; Jan Liesegang and Markus Bader, Raumlabor Berlin; Jan Ritsema, PerformingArtsForum, Laon/France; Alice Chauchat, choreographer, Berlin, Ligia Nobre, Architect, Sao Paolo.
